Reviews
Praise for The Power of Regret

"Daniel Pink reclaims regret as an indispensable emotion and explains how to use it to make better decisions, perform better at work or school and bring greater meaning to your life. His well-known, user-friendly style, chock-full of moving stories, will have you looking at regret as something that doesn't just make us human, but also makes us better." --The Wall Street Journal

"The Power of Regret dives deep into the research behind the 'most misunderstood' emotion and brings it to life through accessible human storytelling." --Forbes

"Regret could be overdue for its own rebranding. ... [A] look back might be the way to move forward. We might find lessons lurking in moments we've pushed from the light. Regret has long been considered a sign of weakness, but what if we saw it as a strength?" --The Washington Post

"Prolific author Pink seamlessly blends neuroscience, psychology and more for a new look at what he sees as a misunderstood emotion--regret. Pink draws on the largest survey ever done about Americans' attitudes toward regret to reshape the way we think about it, creating his own three-step process for using regret to one's advantage in this inspiring guide." --Newsweek

"This pragmatic guide to harnessing the power of the past...assembles an impressive array of research and includes some moving stories of people dealing with mistakes...readers looking to shake their shame should start here." --Publishers Weekly

"An insightful and rewarding glimpse into the emotional pathways of human contrition. . . .Pink offers practical guidance on how readers can thrive beyond their mistakes, molding them into learning opportunities." --Kirkus

"As he so often does, Daniel Pink transformed my understanding of a subject and convinced me of the power of regret. Through his remarkable research, I learned not only what people regret, but also how to optimize those regrets. Every time I read a Daniel Pink book, I walk away a better and more informed person." --Sanjay Gupta, M.D., Chief Medical Correspondent, CNN

"I love that Daniel Pink is taking on one of the best (and toughest) teachers in my life--regret. I've always known that regret deepened my connection to myself and to others, but now, thanks to Dan's research and storytelling, I understand why. The idea of 'no regrets' doesn't mean living with courage. It means living without reflection. The world needs this book and more reflection. Now." --Brené Brown, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead

"If you have long assumed that 'no regrets' is the way to live life, then this book is for you. The incomparably candid, clear, and concise Daniel Pink summarizes the latest science on looking backward on what could have been and shows how it can vault you forward to a happier, more productive, and principled life." --Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit
